2018 Senior Class Gift

For Families

Through the Senior Class Gift (SCG), parents and family members can honor their student’s Mac journey and everything that makes Macalester wonderful. Gifts to the SCG support all the programs that make a Macalester education exceptional. Your contribution is a demonstration of your commitment to the Macalester educational experience that impacted your student and their classmates. Make your gift by April 30th to honor your senior publicly in the Senior Class Gift Honor Roll on the Commencement website.

Many family members become monthly sustainers to ensure that their support of Macalester continues beyond their student’s graduation. The SCG is also an opportunity for families to join our Grand Society with a leadership gift of $1,600 or more to honor their student. Parent and family contributions allow for innovation, while also supporting the most fundamental elements of the Macalester experience.

Thank you for giving in honor of the Class of 2018, your student, and the Macalester community members who impacted their time here!

Make your gift by April 30th for inclusion in the Senior Class Gift Honor Roll on the Commencement website. Connect Sara Johnson ’06, Associate Director of Parent & Family Giving, if you have any questions about the SCG (sjohnso2@macalester.edu).

For Students

Through the Senior Class Gift (SCG), seniors have the opportunity to make their first contribution to the Macalester Annual Fund and pay it forward for future generations of Mac students.

Our Goal

The SCG effort has been a long-time Macalester tradition. Our goal for the Class of 2018 is to reach 80 percent participation of seniors (we hope to beat the class of 2017’s 76 percent record).See all past results here.

Why Give?

Annual Fund gifts support financial aid, academic programs and departments, and all the distinctive and essential aspects of a Macalester education. Everyone’s contributions make a huge difference! Macalester’s broad base of support enhances our strong reputation in the community and the value of a Macalester degree.

The SCG is an opportunity to honor a professor or staff member who has positively impacted your Mac journey. Say thanks for your Macalester education and support the Mac experience for future generations.
